2013 Luiano Sangiovese

This Italian gem shows expressive notes of cherry, tea leaves, and daisies create an elegant bouquet. On the palate, it is velvety with wonderful fruit flavors and a smooth finish.

From the Wine Maker – “Brilliant ruby red color with violet reflections. It has intense fruit aromas and a balanced fruity taste.”

This wine is an excellent companion for fish and meat carpaccios, shellfish, spicy seafood, seafood pasta and soup dishes, and cheeses paired with sweet jams. It also goes well with desserts made with chocolate.

2012 Sterling Vintner’s Collection Pinot Noir

Sterling-Vintner's-Collection-Pinot-NoirA majority of our fruit came from Edna Valley, a distinctive coastal region with a reputation for producing lovely, fruit-driven Pinot Noir. Located in San Luis Obispo, this unique valley is oriented east to west, drawing in the nearby marine breeze and creating one of the coolest and longest growing seasons in California. The long hang times translate to fruit with ripe tannins and elegant black cherry flavors. A small amount of fruit came from Monterey County, which provided brambly, berry-jam character. By using several vineyards, we were able to create depth and complexity in the wine.

From the winemaker – “Lifted aromas of cherry, blackberry, cocoa and sweet earthy notes open our Pinot Noir. On the palate, the expressive bright fruit evolves to darker blackberry jam, chocolate covered cherries and soft oak. Fine tannins lend velvety, lush texture as the flavors extend into a long, satisfying finish. Pair this inviting Pinot Noir with comfort foods, such as herb-roasted chicken or wild mushroom pasta.”

2006 Monsieur Touton Merlot

Packed with deep, dark berry fruit and nuanced hints of cocoa, herb and earth with a soft structure. Its velvety texture makes Merlot instantly appealing and an obvious alternative to similar, more tannic Bordeaux varieties. A delicious straight forward, no-nonsense Bordeaux wine. The finish is long and the tannin is perfect for any kind of game or casserole dish.

Great with rack or leg of lamb, lamb chops, roast pork, pork chops or tenderloin, veal with heartier vegetable and/or bean sauces or mushroom and/or wine sauces or Parmigiano, Romano and other hard cheeses as well as cheddar and other savory, firm cheeses.
